Why in gods name would you do that were talking about 10$ here for a faster chip with the latest features lol Plus running that 3770k at 4.5ghz = a 2700k @ 4.7ghz....

I guess you just do not know any better...

This is Us letting you know.. Get a 3770k for 229$.... Quad 660tis could not bottleneck it at 4.5ghz and you have 8x8x8x8x with pci-e 3.0...

Overall the 2700k is better. But once again, since you're mainly gaming, you won't really be taking advantage of hyperthreading, you wont get a big boost in framerates with a 2700 vs 2500.

Go for the 2500k, you also won't have problems overclocking to 4.5. The extra $60 you save could go to getting a better GPU (link) which will yield better framerates compared to the 660ti.

If looking at AMD, you could consider the 7950 (link) and overclock it. You'll essentially have a 7970 in your hands at that point which does equal (or do better than) a 680.

edit: lol, so many replies in the time it took me to type. didn't look at microcenter prices, and didnt realize the price difference is minimal, go ivy. 15% or so better i think with the 3570k vs 2500k

edit2: i wish i could get a 3770k at those prices here tongue.gif

Why? Get Ivy and be happy. Sandy is old news now.


Also the GTX660ti is by far the worst card out right now. It is extremely overpriced and performance was lacking from the beginning. If going Nvidia get the GTX670 atleast, the GTX660ti is a joke.

Faster IPC and uses less power and built on a 22nm process.
Also I would get a 7950 as it not only is faster then a 660ti but It is faster then a GTX670 and can be OCed to match a GTX680 quite easily.
A 7950 @ 1200mhz is about the same as a GTX680 @ 1300mhz believe it or not. For around the same cost why get less performance?
Edit:
Also I would get a better hard drive, unless you getting a SSD i would stay away from anything with Green in the name. Personally I would go with a WD drive blue or black for dependability, samsung isnt that bad but if you go with seagate have fun RMAing your drive once a year. If going samsung get the spinpoint. Samsung is now owned by seagate so expect Samsung hard drives to go down the tubes in quality.

Well, I was in fact just joking around with bein rich haha tongue.gif as you can see by my medium gamers budget build! I am considering the radeon now that you guys mention it, but I really do love my physX, but i am thinking to myself, will I really miss physX? Arent all games about the eye candy and graphics? the physX would only improve that. Then again the radeon 7950 might allow more in the long run.. does anyone have any reliable benchmarks between the cards?

I feel like the whole 6 series is a joke right now. 100 bucks more than AMD at the same performance. mad.gif Hopefully they don't do the same with the 7series.

Very few games fully utilize physx. To be honest i don't even notice the difference with physx on or off.

edit: if you really want your physx, isnt there a physx hack of sorts? where you use an nvidia card as a dedicated physx card?

http://www.overclock.net/t/1322119/12-11-vs-310-33 this should give you a good idea of nvidia vs AMD, most other benchmarks i see are older using older drivers as well.

It is 10$ bro.. cut the budget somewhere less important get a different brand 660ti that is 10$ cheaper then the other lol.

Maybe get a different PSU to cut cost? Unless you plan on going with a multi-GPU setup later on...

Yep you're wrong. 2500k is an i5, 26/2700k are i7. the latter are where the blatant binning occurs.
